How do I uninstall App not Showing up in Remove Programs?

I installed a version of Sprint Nav on my Imagio having read a thread about it. It works but asks for login etc which I don't have, so I went to remove it.

It does not show up in Remove Programs. Any idea how to uninstall it? The only real utility I have is SKTools lite.

Well, you could try another app like Memmaid or something else that has an uninstaller in it. Or just find the folders using File Explorer in Program Files and Windows and wherever else they might be. Then you could use a reg editor to remove any remnants in the registry.

Thanks but I don't know enough to find remnants. Not afraid of regedit, just wouldn't know what to look for.

I understand. I recommend using PHM regeditor because it has a search/find function that you can just type in the words you are looking for and it will find those words in any values and strings so you can remove whatever you want. I would do a backup first before you start deleting anything though. You can find it in the ppc software forum in the commonly used apps thread. I'll look around and see if I can find an uninstaller app for you.

Re: How do I uninstall App not Showing up in Remove Programs?

I may give it a shot. I found one called TMS Uninstaller. One thing I figured out:

Even though it's Sprint Navigator, the folder shows up as Telenav and the .exe is Telenav.exe

So that may be part of the confusion.

Re: How do I uninstall App not Showing up in Remove Programs?

I downloaded TMS. Not sure it's any better than Windows native uninstaller. I reinstalled Telenav over SprintNav since they were using the same folder name (Telenav) and Exe name (Telenav.exe) then installed Telenav.

With SKTools I found to registry items. One for telenav and one for sprintnav and deleted them.

I have since downloaded phm regedit though I need to figure out how to even see anything. Do I doubleclick with my stylus?
